When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed - which in Rome can mean only one thing: the great general must be assassinated. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar's nephew Octavius. When their armies close at Philippi, will Caesar's ghost be avenged? Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence, Shakespeare's tense drama of high politics reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power.Performers Joseph Adelakun (Cobbler), Ben Allen (Cinna the Conspirator), Kristin Atherton (Calphurnia), David Burnett (Murullus), James Corrigan (Mark Antony), Paul Dodds (Metellus Cimber), Patrick Drury (Cinna the Poet), Waleed Elgadi (Soothsayer), Martin Hutson (Cassius), Tom Lorcan (Publius), Luke MacGregor (Carpenter/Volumnius), Tom McCall (Casca), Hannah Morrish (Portia), Anthony Ofoegbu (Trebonius), Dharmesh Patel (Decius Brutus), Lucy Phelps (Waiting Woman), Jon Tarcy (Octavius), Alex Waldmann (Brutus), Marcello Walton (Lepidus), Andrew Woodall (Julius Caesar).
